Hinode is based on the following core components:
- Hugo is a static HTML and CSS website generator written in the
Go language . It is optimized for speed, ease of use, and configurability. Hugo takes a directory with
Markdown content and templates and renders them into a full HTML website.
- Bootstrap is a popular, open-source web development framework. Using a mobile-first approach, it provides several functions and components to simplify the creation of responsive websites.
- npm is a software registry that enables the sharing and reuse of both open-source and private software packages. By taking advantage of its version management, software dependencies are easily tracked and updated.
- FlexSearch is a flexible search library to enable full text search across your site.
- Font Awesome is a popular icon library and toolkit, used on over 200 million sites. The free version provides access to more than 2,000 icons. The toolkit also provides various styling and animation options out of the box.
Hinode supports several opt-in components. In the default configuration, these components are added on a page-by-page basis:
- KaTeX is a fast math typesetting library for the web.
Hinode is inspired by the following themes:
- Blist is a clean and fast blog theme for your Hugo site using Tailwind CSS.
- Doks is a Hugo theme for building secure, fast, and SEO-ready documentation websites, which you can easily update and customize.
